Odd request

Jen and I are planning our final May vacation. Our May vacation is our anniversary trip, where we celebrate each other and our commitment to each other. This, as I say, is our last May vacation, because Jen's schedule at school is changing, meaning she won't have May off anymore. This trip is to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary to boot, so we're going out with a bang.

I think, given all this, you can understand why we aren't meeting anyone while on this trip. However, given the location chosen, I think I'd be foolish not to consult with the friends list about places to go and things to do.

So, with the understanding that we'll be in the area and not meeting anyone, does anyone what to share things that we should see, do, or eat in Chicago?

City Pass, Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, Art Institute. That'll get you started.

If you're interested in architecture, you can ride the Green Line out to Oak Park; there's a bunch of Frank Lloyd Wright stuff there. There's also an architecture of the Loop tour on a "private" L train, but a quick search seems to suggest that's on hiatus now. Pity.

I like to ride trains when I'm in Chicago but I don't know if that's your cup of tea. I've managed to hit most (but not all) of the L system, and even a little bit of the Metra. (There's a good deal with Metra on the weekends, an all-day pass for something like $5.)

Might want to take a river cruise; just watch out for Dave Matthews Band tour buses above.
